Project Worthmore

Founded in 2009 as a direct response to the unmet needs of the growing refugee and immigrant community in Colorado, Denver-based Project Worthmore offers six distinct programs run by and for the refugee and immigrant community. From English language classes to medical and family support services, to the cultivation and distribution of healthy food, Project Worthmore offers a wide web of support for families navigating a completely new life.

The English language program offers classes multiple times a day at various locations in the heart of the refugee community. Free babysitting is provided and the classes are tailored to the unique needs, interests and questions of the students, allowing them to both learn a new language and acquire deeper cultural understanding.

Immigrant and refugee families find family and medical support through the “Family Partner” program and the Worthmore Clinic. The “Family Partner” program pairs volunteers and refugee families with the hope they might develop “meaningful relationships that aid in social bridging — a key factor in refugees becoming more integrated and self-sufficient”. To help break down barriers to medical care, the Worthmore Clinic operates a five-chair dental clinic with comprehensive restorative and preventative dental care.

To combat barriers to food security and access to healthy food, Project Worthmore partners with Denver Urban Gardens to operate DeLaney Community Farm, a 5-acre farm that supports refugees through sustainable agriculture and community building. The Yu Meh Food Share, a culturally relevant food access program run by refugees, ensures food from the farm and local businesses gets to the community members who need it.

Simply Organic’s contribution of $15,000 in 2020 will support the Yu Meh Food Share program’s efforts to expand the volume of produce distributed, hours of availability, and deliveries to clients with mobility issues.
